What it does:
Get the perks of a gel mani, without the fuss. Formula X’s bestselling four-step mani kit, The System, takes it to the next level with The System XCEL™. It features the same easy steps, and now with even better formulas—plus the wider, faster Xpert Strokes™ brush. Instantly elevate any Formula X nail color with up to 10 days of chip-resistant color, gel-like shine, and the plumping effect of gel simply by layering. It combines salon secrets with advanced polish-plumping XCEL technology that activates when layered, transforming into a voluminous, gel-like shield when dry. Each set includes a full-size color polish of your choice, and is encased in unique magnetized packaging that folds into a cube so you can store your mani essentials in style.
Start with CLEANSE XCEL, an essential salon secret that gives nails a clean slate, making them the ultimate canvas for polish. Its unique flash-dry formula gently removes natural surface oils while conditioning the nails and leaving them completely dry to the touch. Next, prep, protect, and help polish stay put with PRIME XCEL, a multitasking base coat infused with keratin and advanced bonding agents to help color take hold, be stronger, and last longer while protecting it from staining. After applying a Formula X color of your choice, make your mani last with ultra-glossy, fast-drying SHINE XCEL, fortified with acrylic to seal in nail color with gel-like protection.
